Probably the greatest chiptune madness you’ll hear all week, Jesse ‘Tugboat‘ Novak’s 8-bit hip-hop medley moves from Jay-Z to Kanye via T.I., Chamillionaire and Ludacris without dropping a beat, or a bit.
The full tracklist:
Jay-Z – Dirt Off Your Shoulder;
T.I – What You Know;
Chamillionaire – Ridin’;
Ludacris – What’s Ya Fantasy;
Bonecrusher – Neva Scared;
Kanye West – Overnight Celebrity;
Ludacris – Move Bitch;
Lil’ Jon – Get Low;
Kanye West – Gold Digger
Researching further sent me spiraling down a rabbit hole: if you believe everything you read on the internet (and I have no reason not to, right?), ‘J-No‘ was also behind the Clash sample used in M.I.A.’s Paper Planes, which then led me simultaneously to this Black Nerd parody of Paper Planes featuring the Konami Code and Novak’s excellent Akon calls T-Pain video, and I’d better stop now or I’ll lose another hour to all this.
